I often get asked how many days a week I practice ‘yoga’. I find this an odd question to respond to, and often my answer shocks most people, because a lot of the time my ‘practice’ isn’t solely mat based. Some weeks I practice physically 6 days, some 7, some 2 or 3. BUT Yoga is not just about the physical. It is not about how many chaturangas you can do, how long you can be upside down, how toned your biceps are, or how flexible your hips are. This is simply one limb of yoga, the asana side, you could skip this entirely and still be practicing ‘yoga’. The mental Continue reading “MY 21 MOST INSPIRING & FAVOURITE QUOTES ABOUT YOGA & LIFE” »
2017. What a beautiful year you are proving to be. I’ve just spent the last month and a bit fueling myself up for this year by surrounding myself with my loved ones back home in Australia (& getting a hefty dose of solid Vitamin D before returning to the other side of the world!).

To try & even explain this moment in this photo and my time last year in Bali is near impossible, but I’ll give it a go: This moment in Bali broke me completely & rebuilt me at the same time. It was intense to say the least.
Surrounded by hundreds of people on a sacred day in a very sacred space I wept publicly for Continue reading “I CRIED IN PUBLIC & DAMN IT WAS GOOD” »
“We rise by lifting others.” Lately there’s been a few internet bullies and a few nasty attacks towards me. So far this last fortnight has been a tester – I’ve been told I’m an idiot, I’m a waste of space, I’m unauthentic, I’ve had cruel things said about loved ones, I’ve been told I’m too fat Continue reading “HERE’S HOW I’M DEALING WITH AN ONLINE BULLY – Lessons of Love & Kindness” »

Sometimes allowing a little time out for yourself to do what you love without any expectations, guilt, or pressures is exactly what you need in order to return to your “normal” life fully recharged. For me that was getting to visit my family and friends back in Oz. Because of this time to connect with others and the demands of everyday life, I am so fired up and buzzing with excitement for the rest of this year ahead.
What are you waiting for? Seriously, what is it? What is holding you back from becoming your ultimate, happiest, healthiest self? Is it the fear that you won’t reach your goals? Is it fear that you’ll be judged for not meeting someone else’s expectations? Is it that you don’t think you will succeed so why should you even try? Is it the fear of the unknown and stepping out of your comfort zone and actually having to go get it? I hear you. I’ve had these thoughts. I’ve had the Continue reading “WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?” »
“How you start your day is how you live your day, and how you live your day is how you live your life.” Morning rituals give you a chance to set the tone for your day. Starting your day off with familiarity and calmness leads to a state of inner peace and harmony, which will carry throughout your day and impact upon how you respond to any later scenarios or stressors. I may even go as far to say that by incorporating morning rituals into your routine may even cure your need for a coffee buzz!
